Want a chance to see Michael Rooker (above), Walter Koenig and Bruce Campbell and dive deep into the world of comics and pop culture, all for free? The Denver Comic Con is offering you a chance to do just that this summer, if you lend a hand.
Denver Comic Con announced today it will increase its volunteer force for the event by 300 percent and offer 300 hours of programming, up from last year’s 250 hours. The 3rd annual Denver Comic Con, will be held at the Colorado Convention Center on June 13 – 15, 2014.
“As much fun as it’s been the first two years, we’re always striving to make Denver Comic Con better,” said Dr. Christina Angel, director, Denver Comic Con, in a press release. “By putting the right people in the right positions we’re streamlining operations, and by adding more panels and speakers we’re delivering a world-class comic con and focusing on some things that set us apart—such as kids’ and under-20 programming.”
Denver Comic Con is taking applications for volunteers now on the website at http://denvercomiccon.com/dcc/volunteering-welcome, but the volunteer opportunities will be capped at 1,000.
“We encourage people to get signed up early,” said Beth Kovacs, Denver Comic Con’s volunteer director. “Volunteering with DCC is a lot of fun—our volunteers also have free access to the con the day of their shift—but it’s also a great resume builder for a lot of people. It’s not a surprise that most of the volunteers from years past are returning again for 2014.”
